No. Paint not sepcifically designed for leather will not produce a happy result. Use the dye and the outcome is VERY VERY good. Taping off the sole however is worthwhile and recommended. When done following the instructions anyone who has an issue with the appearance has issues. I guarantee you if you didn't say anything odds are extremely good they wouldn't notice and odds are there are greater infidelities these folks will make it their business to find. ("But they're doing it for the vets") Geezus give me a break.
That is of course their right as is my right to suggest they generally have far more critical infidelities to worry about typically than black boots dyed brown. Weight, age, conditioning, language. Last I checked the hobby was supposed to be fun.

CPL. Mills 2nd Rangers: HIKI is good if your on a budget. The uniforms are cheap, and that will be pretty obvious when you get your hands on it. The sizing is off, might want to order one size up from what you wear. I bought pants from them, I needed to get 2x my normal size

CPL. Mills 2nd Rangers: Hiki Shop quality is passable, there are better quality out there but if you want to through together an impression quick and on the cheap they are the way to go. I bought my Heer pants from them.

suomifinn: Hikishop is legit. I use them for my Finnish impression. Some of the stuff can be off in terms of accuracy, easily fixable though. For the price it's hard to beat. Great for more obscure countries.
